Over the years there have been many robot games, and there have been surfing games as well. However, never before in history has there been a human brilliant enough to combine the two. That ends June 1 however as Pieces Interactive preps Robo Surf for its debut on the App Store.
Long before the Angry Birds became the undisputed kings/queens of the App Store there was another physics launching game that was tearing up the charts. Crush the Castle became a quiet hit, racking up more than a million and a half downloads. Now the game's developer, Armor Games, is back with a spiritual successor to Crush the Castle to take back the throne it once held.
The war of the weirdest continues at a frenzied pace these days as App Store game creators are coming up with ever more bizarre ways to make their games stand out against the competition. Just recently we took a look at Destructopus (which we hear is doing very well on the App Store) then there was Laser Dolphin, and now we have Pizza vs Skeletons. It's the latest in a batch of strange games that are exactly what they sound like.
Back in March we reported on the announcement of an officially licensed iPhone game based on the legendary cult-classic Army of Darkness. Today that game arrived in the New Zealand App Store which means there's a very high liklihood the game will be arriving in App Stores around the world in the coming hours.
BillMinder for iPhone users have raved about the app in reviews, and now developer return7 has introduced something that will have them screaming for joy as they make short work of paying bills each month -- BillMinder for iPad has arrived.
Liv Games has announced that it's popular castle defense game, Legendary Wars, now has an iPad native version to call its own. The partly wacky yet fully epic Legendary Wars brings big fantasy battles to iOS devices like few others.
1-Bit Ninja may look like a simple retro throwback, and it is. But it's also much more than that. It's not just your average, run-of-the-mill Mario homage. It also has some really neat ideas. The announcement video shows off the ability to swipe the screen to turn the camera and make the 2D level into a 3D level.
Ever felt the urge to build one of those ridiculous Rube Goldberg contraptions OK GO is always featuring in their music videos? Well that's the subject of Casey's Contraptions, a new upcoming iOS game that tasks the player with building elaborate cause-and-effect chains to complete the level. Some of the contraptions in the release video are pretty impressive.
We love RedLynx for a number of different reasons. It's not just for their iOS classic DrawRace, either. We also, admittedly adore their Xbox Live game Trials HD. Now we're getting word that the developer is hard at work for a brand new iOS title that will be the sequel to the aforementioned game, DrawRace.
If there's one area that the iOS gaming platform has been lacking in it has definitely been quality multiplayer experiences. While the PSP has games like Monster Hunter and SOCOM and Nintendo DS has Mario Kart, the iPhone hasn't had all that many quality multiplayer games worth getting excited about. So our interest was definitely piqued when we learned about the announcemen of Crescent Moon Games' 8-player shooter, Deadlock.
